Posted in: Trump argues First Amendment protects him from 'insurrection' cases aimed at keeping him off ballot See in context

So, like political bribery money, insurrection is now protected under the first amendment! His current lawyers (who will never get paid) are as twisted as he is.

Posted in: Japan has seen ballooning costs for elderly care with not enough young people to fill jobs and pay for various social and welfare programs. How would you recommend the government deal with this issue? See in context

Failing that, immigration is the only solution. Deep societal divisions between women and dinosaurs can’t be addressed in the next several generations.

We need more slogans and committees set up to discuss how to best throw money at the problem. We need more elites in expensive suits who have no idea about normal society to make decisions about things they don’t know nor care about. And slogans.

If lots more money is thrown at campaigns to make babies, then everything should be ok, surely. Come on people, we can’t get these balls rolling until we get a catchy slogan, onat includes the word ‘woman’ in it.

Posted in: White House to announce first-ever federal office of gun violence prevention, sources say See in context

Can’t watch any movie from America that doesn’t have guns as the tool for solving problems. (Full disclosure: haven’t seen Barbie or Opp, but I’m sure there are guns present in both of them). Guns are in that country’s DNA. Violence too. Good luck with this, it’s a start, but an uphill battle.

Given the deteriorating security environment in Canada,

he’s a piece of work, playing the victim, grossly exaggerating or even inventing justifications for his authoritarianism is his MO.

Look at all you “I’m not racist, but …” supporters of intolerance.

God forbid if your Mike Brady haircut, temple garment, long sleeved dresses, are refused entry somewhere. Imagine the uproar!!

Posted in: Kishida starts 7-day trip to Indonesia, India for ASEAN, G20 talks See in context

Gee, his passport must be getting full.

But I think it shows a willingness to look outside Japan and to accept opportunities that exist in closer relationships with other countries, rather than the elitist, exclusionist, jingoistic and myopic attitudes of past prime ministers.

Posted in: Japan gov't panel proposes introducing joint custody after divorce See in context

It certainly is a step towards the 21st century, but I can’t help thinking that it won’t stop women from choosing to erase the father from their child’s life, and may even lead to abductions and worse.

All those Johnny Pencil-Pushers, all those Poindexters, all those egghead desk jockeys preparing for this event with such a massive global media attention, and they didn’t take the neighbours’ potential reactions into account?!

Posted in: Portrayals of duality: 'Hafu' in the media and popular culture See in context

I hate this word ‘half’. It indicates that only the half that is Japanese counts, and the other ‘half’ isn’t important.

I regularly slip in “mix” whenever locals comment on my ‘half’ daughter.

Posted in: Number of teachers quitting for mental health reasons hits record high in Japan See in context

@BertieWooster exactly. In an ideal Japan, that is exactly what is needed. But this is not ideal Japan, “here is Japan”.

Posted in: Number of teachers quitting for mental health reasons hits record high in Japan See in context

Why does @sakurasuki consistently get voted down for making salient, cogent points and observations?! Is it because their English isn’t ‘perfect’?

Indeed, teachers here, especially elementary school teachers, are forced to take on so many extra responsibilities including disciplining the children of lazy parents, dealing with those same parents’ complaints that they have disciplined their undisciplined children, that of course they will burn out. And for what? A pay packet that can’t even support a single income family.

Total disregard of speed limits, seat belt laws, and red lights is coming home to roost.

Posted in: Fujitsu deploys AI customer service solution for field trials at supermarket chain in Japan See in context

The appeal for this kind of future lies purely with the retailers, eager to be rid of human staff and all the baggage that they require. Customer service then disappears (hello DAISO), and the benefits go up to the board rooms and shareholders.

Meanwhile, their target demographics are the next generations who are kids now, who see this as normal.

Remember when petrol stations were staffed by skilled people who knew about car maintenance? Thing of the past. Just like customer service will one day be.

I’m amused as Trump will just fundraise another 50 million and take the lead over Biden in the next NY Times poll instead of being tied.

that’s it, bilk the rubes out of their money, throw it around, burn it, because it’s all about the millions.

@Blacklabel this 3rd indictment is the best thing to happen in your ridiculous clown politics since the Mango Mussolini was kicked to the kerb.

Posted in: Police officer drunk driving cases in Japan up over 2-fold for Jan-June See in context

The police are supposed to lead by example in communities. They certainly do here: nobody gives a toss about red traffic lights, let alone the amber ones; seat belts?! Phh! Public drunkenness and ‘public nuisance’ crimes…

Posted in: The United States would find it nearly impossible to respond promptly and effectively to Chinese aggression against Taiwan without being able to call on U.S. forces and its facilities in Japan. See in context

I don’t believe that the US could respond efficiently anyway, regardless of where they have troops based. For all their posturing, all their war worshipping movies, all their money spent on their military, they totally screwed up Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. Can’t be trusted.

I think it was Churchill who said that you can always count on America to do the right thing, after they’ve tried everything else.

I just watched a compilation of movie trailers of soon to be released movies on YouTube. Most of them featured gun worship, gun violence, solving problems by gun/violence, massive amounts of gun related violence. All from a war-mongering country. Correlation? Believe it.
